The Equality State
Designed by a graduate of the Art Institute of Chicago, the Wyoming state flag was originally created by Verna
Keays in 1916, perfected by Dr. Hebard, and officially adopted as the state flag on March 4, 1917. The state seal is branded on
the white silhouette of an American Bison, which is within a blue rectangle outlined in white, outlined by a thick red stripe.
The red symbolizes the Native Americans and the blood shed by the early pioneers. The blue represents the state's beautiful skies
and mountains, and the white stands for purity.
Signified within the seal are representations of the four major industries in Wyoming – oil, mines, livestock, and
grain. The dates on the side of the seal represent two very important moments in Wyoming history: 1869 was the year the Wyoming
Territorial Government was formed, and 1890 was the year Wyoming became the 44th state to join the Union.
Arguably the most important symbol in the seal is the woman holding a banner with the state motto,
"Equal Rights" written on it. This symbolizes the distinct honor Wyoming bears as the first state to give women the
right to vote in 1869 – something that makes Wyoming natives proud to wave this flag high.
